An environmentally friendly DecoMark® playground adorns the residential complex “Green City” in St. Petersburg, Russia

Together with Severny Gorod, who is one of the leading construction companies in St. Petersburg, Geveko Markings Russia has created an original playground for the "Green City" residential complex in St. Petersburg. Not only is the playground a colourful and creative space for active learning - it is also made with environmentally friendly material that reduces the risk of skin problems and allergic reactions.

Since day one, the playground area has been extremely popular with the children of the “Green City” who does not have to use chalk to draw their playground games anymore. The 12 different DecoMark® games makes it easy and fun to learn the alphabet and numbers in an alternative way. The area consists of hopscotch games, a snail, a caterpillar and snakes with letters and digits. There is also a dartboard for accuracy training, a labyrinth, a clock image and even a big trekking court for the young car racers, roller skaters and cyclists.

The idea behind the various playground games came from our customer and is as such a great example of great cooperation.

All of the colorful horizontal markings were made of preformed thermoplastic DecoMark®. The long durability, excellent visibility and high skid resistance ensures that children can play safely on the playground for years to come. The color pigments used for DecoMark® are all organic and the other components of the thermoplastic material are guaranteed not to give off any environmentally harmful substances.

Our playgrounds markings are characterised by their long durability. In five years time, when the children currently playing at the playground are off to high school, their younger brothers and sisters will still be able to play in the colourful courtyard of the Green City”.

This is the first time Geveko Markings Russia has carried out such a large decorative project in Russia. The 12 playground markings in different colours and sizes were all made of preformed thermoplastic DecoMark® and produced at the production site in St. Petersburg.
